Mandala Mania




The kids were off school this week, so I didn’t have as much time to give to art or to blogging as I usually do. But I did manage to put a few pieces together. I’ve been working on larger paper (A3), and I find it does take significantly longer to draw each mandala. I enjoy working on these bigger mandalas, however, and I feel that this size is becoming my preference. 

I hope you like this week’s drawings.

Have a great weekend.

    1. Hi, Valerie. Thank you. I do like working this size, but now I'm thinking of going bigger. I don't have the space, though. I suppose I could work on the floor if my back allows.

  3. Your drawings are certainly on a large scale being A3. They're very well done John. Happy PPF

  10. yepp, I like them. :) Of course a larger diameter will take a lot more time o finish, you probably need more details in the outer circles :) I would not have the patience to create things like this.

    1. Thank you, NatureFootstep. They do take a while, but I think they are worth the effort. I don't have a lot of patience; when I'm drawing, however, the times fly's by, so I dion't need a lot to do these.

  11. Your artwork is so intricate and beautiful--Time stops when I am doing my art--I'm sure it is the same for you. Your lineart fills my eyes--I'm sure I've said this before, but that is the greatest compliment I can give. :D
